Working with Azure

How to send the query to the correct intent.

Enter bot_setup.js and the following code allows to match the query to the correct intent.

bot.dialog('doSomeIntent', [dialog_intent.Query, dialog_intent.Results]).triggerAction({
  matches: 'intent_name'

Dialog File

Enter the working dialog file or create a new one.


Basic starting requirements.

var builder = require('botbuilder');
var functions_refined = require('../functions_refined/code');
var fs = require('fs');

Use module.exports.Query to match entities in Azure.

module.exports.Query = function (session, args, next) { 
        fs.readFile('./static/qnamaker.txt', 'utf8', function (err, data) { //If you are using qnamaker.txt
        if (err) throw err;
        list = data.split('\n');
        list.forEach(function (value) {
        var entityReception = builder.EntityRecognizer.findEntity(args.intent.entities, 'visitor');
        next({ entityReception: entityReception});
        var entityDepartmentReception = builder.EntityRecognizer.findEntity(args.intent.entities, 'department');

Use module.exports.Requests to respond to the query.

module.exports.Results = function (session, results) {
    //Incase visitorReception is empty. 
    var visitorReception = '';
    try {
        if (results.entityReception == null) {
            visitorReception = results.response;
        else {
            visitorReception = results.entityReception.rawEntity.value.toLowerCase();
    new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
    splitlist.forEach(function (value) { //If using qnamaker.txt
                if (session.message.text == value[0] || value[0].includes(visitorReception)) {
                    sendMessage(session, value[1]);
                    throw new Error("Done");
                else if (!(departmentReception == undefined)) {
                    sendMessage(session, `To get to ${departmentReception}. You can fill out the Virtual Management System on my touch screen or you will have to contact the reception with the number 6592 2727 ${departmentReception}`);
                    throw new Error("Done");
        }).then((res) => {

        }).catch((err) => {
            sendMessage(session, "Default Reception Faliure Message");
    catch (err) {
        //do nothing for now
